Anything interesting or unusual? I took the hounds for a pre-Christmas Day lunch walk and saw a 4 m Burmese Python in the catchwater gulley next to me. (We live in the New Territories, Hong Kong, about a mile from the old Perowne Barracks). I was surprised, as it was only 17-18C. It was pretty torpid - in contrast to me, who moved pretty quickly back the way I came.
